Raines Sandwich

Raines Sandwich

In 1896, New York passed the Raines law to reduce Sunday drinking. The law had a loophole though that allowed bars to serve alcohol only with a meal. Staff added a sandwich to every drink order, then took it away, serving it to the next customer. The sandwich often lasted all day.
